Re: Ask MTF Mods

I have a question about removing Freak3yman840's permaban.

First want to say that absolutely support over turning permaban decisions whoever is included but few things confusing me. From all permbaned posters why Freak3yman840 was the one who deserved decision changing when this poster at the time of his ban created at least 3-4 DAs? And by the rules of MTF just this is enough for another permaban. Even more, if already permaban decision deserved to be changed and you didn't want consider all those DAs as another permaban violation why at least he didn't serve suspension for it from the moment when initial decision was changed? We all are witnessing every day cases when temporally banned users creating DAs and getting extra months of penalty for it.

So my question would be why other permabaned posters who aren't breaking the rules and not making DAs even if they know they won't be back don't deserve second chance but one poster who even permabaned was continuing to break the rules deserved it ?



PS Writing all these want to say I have nothing against Freak3yman840 just I am confused with deciding consistency. Oh wait...

I feel like this has been answered before but the user filed an appeal and it was decided that the user had a good case. The user had already served 6 months of ban time at the time.

The reply will be; Trolling.

Apparantely it's against the rules of MTF to have a little bit of fun. Pusher for life had a harmless gimmick. No one had to take him seriously, he was not breaking any rules, but of course he gets banned. The exact same question can be asked with heya, she's been on the site for 11 years now, I presume she has always posted the same, yet for some reason what she does is now classed as trolling?

If these posters ever get perma banned, MTF will not be the same. Mods seem to be leeching out all of the fun from the place.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Inconsistent much? IIRC TSD has been banned before for trolling, and he recently had another trolling ban that was only for what, 2-3 days? Why is that?

I suggest you both read the rules. Ban length depends on number of active red cards.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

and how you could know if somebody is aware of his trolling ? Maybe he is so lost and lives in delusion so he is actually serious when he is making those kind of posts ? Banning him you are actually hurting his feelings instead of helping him . isn't that some kind of discrimination ?

I do agree. Sometimes it can be very difficult.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

If pusher for life was banned, how come Mark Lenders wasn't? Not that I want Mark Lenders banned; he is a great poster. But Lenders has said all the exact same things pusher for life has said in all the same threads + more.

Also, what is a definition/example of trolling?

Re: Ask MTF Mods

GSMNadal banned? For gloating/trolling?

Surely no more than a few days.

Accumulation of forum disruptions - 1 week - Same number of active red cards as pusher for life.

TopSpinDoctor received a warning/infraction as well for the exact same thing, however, he has not accumulated to the level of a banning yet.

Also, this is based off of a rule that the MTF members asked for a month ago in the suggestion section, so to blame moderators is hilarious.
